Oliver Riot Talks w/NogossipLA – The demons beneath Neurosis

Photo Credit: Oliver Riot

Oliver Riot, the indie duo from Albequrque tapped a vein among fans with their new EP, Neurosis. NogossipLA was lucky enough to catch some air time with the life-blood of the band, twins, Alex and Ben Moore. So, I headed out to South LA, where the brothers gave me a tour of their abode, complete with a garage-turned-studio, and garden of mannequins.

You know how some twins have that uncanny habit of finishing each other’s sentences? Ben and Alex are not those twins. Both would regularly cut the other short throughout the interview while I sprinted to keep pace with these dualing brains. In our conversation we discuss Oliver Riot’s recent success, their new EP Neurosis, and how it is their music has been shaped by their shared disorder, Pure-O OCD. For the die-hard OR fans, you can listen to the full, unedited interview here on Soundcloud or take it in bite-sized pieces below.
